When living beings are separated from their own expressions, gestures, tools, and traditions, they are reduced to golem, mere bodies, and every influence that these things, once a part of their being and now expropriated by the category of “apparatus”, exercise over them is now read as a form of corruption or control. This postmodern trope of the fragility of liberty—all influence is coercion; therefore liberty is a utopian concept—derives from the unconscious assumption that every factor external to a golem has in fact been designed to mold it and guide it through the apparatuses where its miserable life plays out.

Rydra and Bellamy are joined by John Zerzan, live in the studio, fresh from his debate with transhumanist Zoltan Istvan. The three start by debriefing John on the debate, discuss some current events, and then get into some discussion of John's animus toward Egoism and Nihilism as well as Wild Reaction (RS).
